Summary

A computer center can change the destiny of 900 Venezuelan women, helping them to take control of their economic lives and giving them tools to overcome poverty. We want to give a hand to Aliadas en Cadena, a non-profit organization that advances women's human rights in Venezuela, in order to open a new computer center with six new desk computers to help 900 low-income women/yearly. There, they will receive training courses in technology, and thus they'll have access to a better life quality.
